This past Saturday I got some unexpected news. Volume II of Psalms 365: Develop a Life of Worship and Prayer won the 2022 Word Award for the best book in the devotional category.
The win was unexpected because last year Volume I of the Psalms 365 series won the same award. Volume I also won a second more prestigious award—2021 Best Book of the Year. I did not expect lightening to strike for a third time in the same place, especially since there were several other excellent authors shortlisted for the prize this year.
Needless to say, I am very grateful to The Word Guild and the judges for their decision. To God be the glory. Great things He has done!
I am particularly grateful for the readers who have reached out to me to express their thanks for this daily devotional series. Positive feedback is what fuels me and other authors. A brief word of encouragement or a glowing book review has the power to affirm a writer’s gift and calling.
If you appreciate an author’s work, show it. Your feedback can provide the spark they need to continue in their craft and grow in their skills.
As for this Psalms 365 series, there is something very special about daily drawing close to God and letting His word enlighten your day.
Enlighten—I like that word. It describes what the Psalms can do for us. It was the psalmist who penned these eternal words: Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path (Psalm 119:105, NIV).
May the Good Shepherd enlighten the road ahead for you today and always.
